BIOGRAPHY

Tristan Nunez is a 17-year-old professional autoracing driver who competes in the GRAND-AM Rolex SportsCar Series & American Le Mans Series (ALMS). Nunez became the youngest class winner in GRAND-AM history in 2013 and became the youngest SportsCar champion in 2012 when he captured the Cooper Tires Prototype Lites powered by Mazda Series championship. Born to a now-retired professional tennis player, Nunez ventured from the family business and began his racing career at the age of 11. He advanced his career with multiple karting championships and then transitioned into the Skip Barber formula cars, where he was named 2010 Rookie of the Year in the Skip Barber Southern Series and won the Skip Barber Summer Series overall points championship. The teen also won the 2012 Team USA Scholarship, going on to win the Walter Hayes Trophy at Silverstone, and was named by Sports Illustrated as a "Face in the Crowd". The young Floridian stays active on and off the race track as he has joined forces with the Safe America Foundation to serve as an advocate and spread the word on the dangers of texting and driving.
